Prehistoric Pals

Hi everyone! It's release week for Newton's Nook Designs' August stamps.



We're sharing two stamp sets this week, and the stamps will be available for sale on Friday. You can check out the full stamp reveal on the Newton's Nook blog.

I'm actually using both of the new sets today, although I'm featuring the Prehistoric Pals set on this birthday card:



Hee hee. That dinosaur cracks me up every time! I colored and fussy cut the dinosaur and snipped between his hands to hold the present. The present is from the set I'll be featuring tomorrow. ;)

The "BIG wishes" is from the Prehistoric Pals set. I masked off the sentiment and added the word "birthday" from the Winged Wishes set. Here's a close-up:

  17. This is ace! I saw a card similar to this years ago but the sentiment was "had a bad day?" which is not something I could see ever having reason to put on a card so this is just the perfect twist!
